Bea Alonzo and Dominic Roque's breakup: From rumors to confirmation
Rumors about the couple's troubled engagement surfaced online, weeks after their winter holiday trip in Japan in December 2023. Netizens speculated on a lot of things, including an issue about Bea and Dominic's prenuptial agreement.
On February 6, 2024, Boy Abunda grabbed the chance to break the news ahead of the couple. He reported Bea and Dom's separation in his show Fast Talk With Boy Abunda. The TV host also clarified some matters about their relationship, quoting his earlier conversations with Bea and an anonymous source.
The TV personality also called out netizens to stop pointing fingers at the cause of their breakup. Instead, he pleaded that everyone should give them the space to heal and to process their relationship.
"What do we really know about this relationship. Do we know the nuances? Alam ba talaga natin ng detalye? The narrative is not about 'Bea ang problema kaya sila naghiwalay'. Si Bea, gusto ma-save ang relasyon. Si Bea wants this to work. Punta naman tayo doon kay Dominic. "Walang pera, hindi mayaman, hindi sikat, hindi karapat-dapat kay Bea." Cruel. You have the right to comment, you have the right to share your opinion...let's exercise prudence, caution, and most important of all, kindness," he concluded.
